I Believe, I Believe, I Believe
There's one thing about what I am doing, something I have always believed... I will succeed and I will make it.
Times are often financially tight, especially with 2 young children that I want to send to the best play school. I drive to the next town every morning to drop them off and pick them up again. It is a huge financial hit sending them there, not just the fees but also the petrol and wear and tear on my car. It's also a royal pain in the ass and there are schools in my town, they are just not good enough for my little angels. Also time is money and I spend a lot of time fetching and carrying.
I'm working my butt of during the day on my online baby store that is product based and I have 2 websites for: one for retail and one for wholesale. Then in the evenings after I put my kids to bed I work on my making money online website and my addiction recovery websites and of course spend time here on WA learning and being part of the community.
I am up at 5am most mornings, packing lunches for the kids and hubby, then fighting with my kids to eat, brush their teeth and get dressed. Then getting them strapped into their car seats and singing silly songs all the way to school to entertain them... and of course getting them out the car and into their class rooms is another daily hurdle!
By the time I get back to the car I feel like I have already spent a whole day working, when in fact my day is only beginning! It feels like I blink and it is time to rush to the shops before I collect the kids again. I get home with 2 kids and fight to make supper. Bath time at 7pm for the kids, then it is the run of bed time stories and trying to convince my 4 year old daughter that she does NOT need to wee again, no she can't have any more juice or she will wet the bed. No she can't get out of bed and watch a movie... and so it goes on.
I finish with the kids and it is 8pm already, if I am lucky! A quick cup of coffee with my husband and then back to the laptop to try and get some things done. I blink and it is 11h30pm, everyone has been sleeping for hours. The house is quiet and damn I still need to shower and get into bed.
Where does the time go!
And why do I do this? It is simple. I can feel it, I am so close. I can see my keyword rankings rising, I can see the amount of content on my website increasing. I know I can make money doing this. The end result that I believe in is that soon, very soon I can hire someone to do all the dogs work for my online baby store, I can have the liberty of taking some time off safe in the knowledge that there is some money coming in even if I am not sitting working all day every day.
I know I am close, I know I can do this.
To everyone else wondering and hoping that they can succeed. Watch my blogs because I will share what happens next, I know I will do it and you can too.
Have a lovely evening and keep going.
